Has the advancement of science manipulated the progress of humanity over time?

  • Manipulated means changed.

    Out of all the responses saying how it did not manipulate humanity, they all described how science was detrimental or destructive. Manipulated means changed, and whether science changed humanity for good or bad, it has changed humanity. The progress of humanity would not be possible without scientific progression, as they are both entwined topics. Therefore, since science did affect humans, I has effected humanity. (I win this on a play of words :P- Alvin He)

  • The End of Intelligence as a Result of the Information Age

    As the proof of the loss of intelligence, I present this debate. (I am not answering the debate, I am making a point.) Look at the answers to the debate question. Clearly, almost none of these actually understand the question. However, why should they be blamed? The debate question is hardly clear. What in the world is that question supposed to mean?

  • Major agreement to science

    Science has created medicine, to bring people back to life, cure the from small pox, polio, valley fever, multiple deadly diseases that ended many lives. Then with the studies on children to see why most struggle with studied or physical activities. Science has its flaws but so does letting nature take its course

  • Yes it has but the question here is did science advance humanity for good or for bad.

    To answer that question we must first see what science has done for us. Some people say that the invention of cars and industries has created pollutions and our health is now bad and one even said that it causes obesity. Yes science has created pollution but also because of science our health is better. Back then a little fever could be fatal when now because of science the most fatal thing that you can have is cancer and fevers go and pass now. As for obesity you can't blame science for bringing food to the table.
    Some say that the atomic bomb is brought by science. And yes i'll give you that. Science is the reason why the atomic bomb came to existence but keep in mind that in ww2 to defeat the germans drastic measures had to be taken.
    And when scientists first started researching atoms and how to take energy for them a bomb wasn't in their minds. There they had a infinite amount of energy which could be used so that we wouldn't pollute our planet anymore.
    Some say that social inventions like the television and phones have divided us apart. And to me that is the most ignorant statement someone can make. The point of television and phones was so that humanity could communicate all over the world. Back then we were divided but now a skype call and we all are bonded together into the network known as internet. If we didn't have science your internet wouldn't exist. We wouldn't have nothing good and when i say nothing good i mean it.
    The definition of science is the meaning of collection knowledge by experiment and proof. So everything can be science. Homes, farms, spears, bows even the way we harvested the warmth of fire in the primitive ages can be considered innovations of science. Most people think of science as numbers and equations but science is much more simple than that and it has helped us advance since the dawn of age.
    Without science we would still be there in the cold harsh nature living by the cruel laws of nature.

  • YES I AGREE with it

    Progress in humanity IS DIRECTLY PROPORTIONAL to science

    We cannot live without satisfying our demands as well as our wanting to know why something is that something. The fruits of this question are physics chemistry and biology and in our course we found difficulties and problems to be overcome. We could solve these problems with the help of physics understand them with the help of chemistry and finally we understand ourselves with the help of biology thus the cycle of these process is essential for our progress. Therefore I would conclude by telling that science is the cause of the advancement of humanity.

  • I think what we are truly asking is: Is science helping us dig an early grave, or build an endless future?

    Science IS: asking the question "WHY and HOW?" over and over, while refining the question each time. More questions equals more answers, and we need storage for all the answers (brains/computers). But, obviously we have much to learn about living on earth considering we are piling up mountains of toxic waste that prove only harmful to our existence; successful organisms don't bite the hand that feeds them. The only way we can support our large population is to learn how to sustain nourishment while decreasing toxicity. Okay, so...Who can we learn from? Who knows how to survive on earth for prolonged periods of time? Who knows how to regenerate their waste into nourishment? Is the answer No Living Thing OR Every Creature. In other words, are we unlike every thing else on earth or are we no different? Is modern technology proof that we can surpass that which limits all other beings, or is technology proof that our hunger for answers (aka science) is the most toxic substances of all? Only time will tell. In the meantime, ants seem to be doing pretty well...Maybe we could ask them.

  • The advancement of science has most definitely manipulated the progress of humanity over time, as is evident by the current lengths of people's lives.

    The advancement of science has caused great changes in the progress of humanity. Today, people have the ability to live much longer than they had in the past. Once deadly diseases are now curable, and some diseases have been eliminated. Science has changed the way humanity progresses and lives. Yes...

    in reply to IscoBradley ther is a branch of genetics which aims at improoving the human race genetically if this is succsfull then i think your reason will be satisfied

  • The advancement of humanity has been greatly effected by science and everyone realizes it.

    Even the one person who said yes, because after I read his thoughts, it has nothing to do with how science has not manipulated the progress of humanity. But know acknowladging that, the next question appears. How has the advancement of science manipulated the progress of humanity? With the new technologies that science has created have increased immigration and globalization. But has decreased health and inceased diseases and obesity. Polution (gas and fuel), has created diseases and deaths. Social networking sites and cell phones have divided people from one another and increased depression. Everywhere, there are proof that science has done alot of great Pros, but then you see the ginormous list of cons.

  • The progress of science has been detrimental rather than beneficial to human

    Science has scored many breakthroughs instrumental in extending mortality and making the earth a better place to live in. But there have been alarming trends, such as ‘mad’ scientists eager to go on to the next step-human cloning. Still the benefits science has reaped may be said to outweigh such ill effects of scientific studies.

  • The advancement of science has not manipulated the progress of humanity, at least not negatively, as the right advancements have been beneficial.

    Technological and scientific advancements will always be beneficial if used responsibly. Communication devices such as cellphones have advanced in ways that bring people closer together; medical advancements have prolonged and saved lives. In the same way, artistic advancements have broadened our minds and changed the way we think and look at the world. The world is always moving forward, and if certain groups of people cannot handle that or embrace scientific progression in hand with humanity's progression, then from a Darwinian point of view, they are somewhat lacking.

  • Has science solved our most vital problems?

    When asked what the most detrimental aspects of society are, the most common answers would probably be; war, rape, selfishness, poverty, etc. Has society advanced any farther in these since the dawn of man? The answer is no, we have simply found new ways to kill, abuse, and manipulate on another as our cultures have adapted to the usual methods, similar to a virus. These sins are a parasite, as "The Man", the ones in power, have always preyed on the weak, and always will. That has been the most consistent pattern of humanity thus far. The only thing that has changed is our increasing hubris to think there are permanent fixes to these problems. Can progress be made? Yes. Can these social ills ever be fully healed? Unfortunately not. The more we believe we have the power to "fix" humanity, the more we impair those who attempt to make tangible progress. For this situation, aim for the moon, and fall to the ground. Social progress is a ladder, not a rocket ship.

  • Science has obliterated one's emotions and sentiment

    The approach of science towards life is crude, monotonous, lifeless, devoid of feelings and love. A switch can destroy the whole world. We had seen the devastation caused due to the atomic bombs in hiroshima and now there are more scientific more accurate warheads available that can destroy the whole world with an hour. Man has started feeling himself almighty and ignoring spiritual values. It has lost his peace of mind, inner satisfaction , ethics etc.
    THANK YOU
